In this 1997 image, a man seated in a wheelchair was shown accessing a bank of mailboxes, which had been designed so that the lowest row of boxes was at a level, which placed them within easy reach for those who were of shorter stature, or as was the case here, someone seated in a wheelchair. Features like accessible mailboxes, are critical components when creating accessible public spaces in multifamily housing.
